Jill completed her Bachelors of Human Kinetics, majoring in movement science, from the University of Windsor. Throughout her undergraduate career, Jill volunteered with the Windsor Essex Community Health Centre in the Chronic Diseases Management Program. It was through this experience that she developed an interest in working within the realm of long term care and the field of gerontology. She continued to take subjects relating to this topic throughout her undergraduate degree, and found herself back in her hometown of Waterloo upon discovering the Public Health and Health Systems Program at the University of Waterloo. Jill is a first year Masters of Science student at the school of Public Health and Health Systems, currently working under the supervision and guidance of Professor Paul Stolee.
In her spare time, Jill enjoys spending time with family and friends, and finding balance in life through Yoga and other forms of exercise.
